Bug Description

For some reason I don't seem to understand, Debian Sid (and so, Ubuntu) is stuck at release 0.7.2 with Strigi. Even Oneiric Ocelot suffers from this.

KDE 4.7.1 features a revamped indexing system, and the index generated by libstreamanalyzer 0.7.2 isn't supported anymore upstream. So, if you don't update strigi-libs (libstreams, libstreamanalyzer) at least to release 0.7.5, KDE 4.7 will suffer from random crashes, massive CPU usage and constant reindexings.

Strigi 0.7.5 was released on June 2th, 2011, at .
Strigi-libs 0.7.6 was tagged on July 27th, 2011, but unannounced. Further bugfixing went on.

Yes, please fix this one – it really makes Nepomuk less usable.

I would like to "vote" for this too, we need the lates version.

working on it. 0.7.6 packages are mostly ready.

Great! I tested Strigi 0.7.5 with KDE 4.6 and there were no problems (in fact, there were less problems than with Strigi 0.7.2). Once this package is done for Oneiric, is a backport to Natty possible?

Strigi 0.7.6-1 uploaded to Debian. We need a sync request.
Though, we're in Beta Freeze, 2 days before beta 2. I'm not sure it will be allowed.

If not, it should be fairly easy to get it in right after beta2 due to the bugfix nature of the release.

Uploaded to my PPA for testing purpose:

I'm filing the sync request.

I've tried the fabos 0.7.6 packages:

With a newly created user there was only a very low cpu and io usage shown in top and iotop.

No noticeable slowdown of the desktop during indexing.

For my taste there's too much cryptic output written to ~/.xsession-error
but that was the case with 0.7.2 too.

As far as I tested it it was stable and a lot better than previous strigi version.

@jr Can we have this package in Kubuntu Backports?
